Took a few photos while in Achill [of Joe McNamara
‘s monument to the Celtic Tiger] over the Easter weekend. The best of the lot in my opinion is the ‘Why don’t you clean up that mess in Keel’ referencing the unfinished cement shell of a hotel that ruins Keel village [McNamara had been developing a large hotel in Achill before the crash]. It’s a fair enough point to make as it’s a complete eyesore on the way through the village.
On the other hand there does seem to be some local support for the project [AchillHenge] and we weren’t the only visitors to follow the hand painted signs up a random bóthareen to take a look that day.
